Intel DX79SI: Super Energy-Efficient LGA 2011 Mainboard
7 February 2012
Summary: The flagship mainboard from the microprocessor giant doesn’t strike you with unique design, specific features or functionality. However, it is phenomenally energy-efficient in its category, of course.
Conclusion: The packaging itself is appropriate, with the Extreme Series skull on the top, underneath which is a see-through packaging to admire the motherboard itself. Inside you’ll find the usual manuals and CD, along with 4x SATA cables, one 2-way and one 3-way SLI bridge and a Bluetooth/WiFi module (not included in our test board). Oh, and a slim Extreme Series mouse pad.
